Term Definition
care ethics

approaches to moral thinking which stress the importance of solidarity community and caring about those close to us as opposed to absolute universal standards. Originally it was seen as a feminist alternative to what was viewed as male-dominated bias around issues of justice in morality. It has however also been criticised by some feminists who view it as perpetuating the image of the 'softer' female stereotype.
